dig for victory...!

Becks gives it some wellie!!

Much progress at the allotment today - having dug the ground up two weeks ago, a period of dry(ish) weather has dried out the ground and much digging and raking could be done. 

A rough plan is to have a patch for onions and garlic, potatoes, peas and beans, parsnips, carrots and beetroot, and purple sprouting brocolli. With radishes, courgettes and rhubarb placed around the site.  We're also going to plant sweet peas and sunflowers which we've already germinated at home. 
Onion and garlic sets going in...

... and covered to stop the birds getting them (the pigeons I mean, not these two....)
